Magic Yarnball Swap - bright & colorful
Swap Coordinator:ozrob (contact)
Swap categories: Random Items  Themed  Yarn 
Number of people in swap:21
Last day to signup/drop:April 2, 2007
Date items must be sent by:April 17, 2007
Number of swap partners:1

This is one of my first swaps as a co-ordinator, so please feel free to ask questions.

I've been wanting to do a swap like this since I've been on here but there hasn't been one, so I couldn't wait to start my own.

For those of you that haven't seen a Magic Yarnball swap before, I will try and explain.

Take 1 ball of yarn (bright & colorful) and 10-15 small items, (also bright & colorful) that you think your partner might like. Start to unravel the yarn and re-wrap it into a new ball. As you wrap, add the small items into the ball as you go. In the end you should have a lumpy bumpy yarn ball all wrapped up.

You can use any kind of yarn you like, must be bright & colorful. Don't forget to include the label in your package for your partners reference.

Please use only new and unused items, they can be things you have on hand already. eg. craft supplies, candy, tea/coffee satchel, knick knacks, key ring, jewellery, small soft toy, anything your partner might like. NO junk or stuff that you wouldn't like to receive yourself.

RECAP: You will need: 1 ball of bright & colorful yarn. 10-15 bright & colorful small items. It's also nice to add a note to your partner.

This is an INTERNATIONAL swap, so please be aware you may have to post overseas. If you cannot afford to pay the postage then please don't signup.

Open to swappers with a 4+ rating and newbies with a very full profile and at least one link to either myspace, flickr or blog.

Anyone with more than 1 no send or flaky profiles will be banned. I don't want anyone to miss out.

Happy wrapping!

I've sent off 5 swaps so hopefully I will have some good feedback by the time this starts.

ozrob 03/11/2007 #

It's really good to see so many participants with a 5 rating!!

I got a message from Swap-Bot that said this one cancelled. Did it? Anybody know anything?

ozrob 03/27/2007 #

This one is definatly not cancelled. It may have been the other one that had 2 partners.

DeeBee 03/27/2007 #

Hey, I got an answer from the owner of this swap, and it is NOT cancelled. There must be a glitch in swap-bot, b/c I got the email about this one, and then it was removed from my page. Now it's back on there again. Wonder what happened? Anyway, I had already started buying things for this one, so I'm happy to know it was NOT NOT NOT cancelled. :-)

Wow Kate (Scrapbookmomof3) the wonderful yarn ball arrived yesterday. Thank you so much, I can hardly wait to give it a heart.

My yarn ball left for New Zealand last Fri. so hopefully it is going to please my partner as much as I enjoyed mine.

DeeBee 04/17/2007 #

Great news! I got my package yesterday from Ozrob! Thanks - I love all the little goodies in it. I'm wearing the bracelet right now. As soon as we can rate, you'll have another heart!!!

Also, I mailed my package yesterday to England. Wow - I'm seeing what everybody is saying about international postage. But I just KNOW my swap partner is gonna love the yarn ball. I had fun fun fun putting it together.

ozrob 04/17/2007 #

Dee - I've uploaded a pic in the gallery for all to see!

DeeBee 04/17/2007 #

Yep, that's it!!! Really great stuff. The little bag that says Daisy and smells so good - I've never seen anything like that before. It smells so good. I wore the bracelet today, and already attached the key ring to something I carry everyday. The granddaughter gets the yellow headband, but I'm using the rest. hehehehe

ceske 04/17/2007 #

Julia, the yarnball you sent arrived today. thank you

ceske 04/17/2007 #

I wonder if someone in NJ has recieved theirs yet???

user6981 04/18/2007 #

My yarnball is in the mailbox for pick up tomorrow! Hope you like it!

user6981 04/18/2007 #

Whew! This was harder than I thought it would be! lol Hard to find things small enough that don't cost a small fortune for each piece! lol I think my partner will be happy though! Fingers crossed! My first swap!

alwaysjoy 04/25/2007 #

rosehueglasses, have you recieved your package yet? I hope so!

DeeBee 04/25/2007 #

Vic/RobotShop - did you get yours yet? I can't wait to hear how you like it.

harleychick27 04/26/2007 #

I have been away for a few days and am sad to see that my partner, tiiamaria, is the only one who still hasn't sent the yarnball. She did email me to say that she'd send it by the end of last week so I am hoping that it's almost ready to go! :O)

user6981 05/ 1/2007 #

Nursy~Got anything yet? ;)

user6981 05/ 1/2007 #

How long are we supposed to allow for shipping of these? I just got a "reminder" to rate, but even though I haven't recieved anything yet, I'don't want to rate if it's just the mail time? I haven't seen any posts about mine going out directed at me though. It's no biggie, just wondering the time on these things.

user6994 05/ 2/2007 #

Hey Jamie! nothing yet. I'll let you know as soon as I do. thanks

user6994 05/ 4/2007 #

Jamie....It just arrived yesterday. It was a blast unravelling it! Thanks for the perfect goodies!
